New England

Lost amid brilliant game plan they implemented for rookie QB Jacoby Brissett was defense pitching its first shutout since 2012.
2 Denver

Trevor Siemian's 132.1 QB rating Sunday exceeded any figure posted by Peyton Manning in the final 19 games of his career.
3 Minnesota

This is shaping up as the nastiest defense in the league. It's responsible for scoring 16 points and has 15 sacks and nine takeaways.
4 Philadelphia

All the Carson Wentz talk is justified. But Philly has scored the most points in the league and allowed the fewest. A stunning start.
5 Green Bay

Maybe all this offense needed was some home cooking. And though pass defense was scorched, Clay Matthews was one of four inactive starters.
6 Pittsburgh

(Slightly) silver lining -- worst loss of Mike Tomlin era came on road out of conference. (Shinier) silver lining -- Le'Veon Bell returns.
7 Seattle

Russell Wilson has bad right ankle, bad left knee, but may start (behind THAT line) against THAT Jets D-line? Cooler heads, please.
8 Carolina

Cam Newton was sacked eight times, picked off on three occasions and didn't complete one pass to Kelvin Benjamin or Devin Funchess.
9 Baltimore

Can't do better than 3-0. But our enthusiasm is tempered by their opponents' combined 1-8 record and combined winning margin of 13 points.
10 Houston

Not hard to imagine John Elway telling Gary Kubiak over a beer last Thursday, "This is why we didn't pay Osweiler $72 million."
